2009 Subaru Forester Pricing Announced

Forester

We first saw the all-new 2009 Subaru Forester last month at the Detroit auto show. Subaru has just released pricing for the new Forester, and the base model comes in $1,200 under the 2008 Forester’s base price.

Starting at $19,995 — not including a $665 destination charge — the 2009 Forester is larger than the outgoing model and has ditched its station wagon appearance for a more traditional crossover SUV look.

There are additional standard features on the 2009, including side curtain airbags and an electronic stability system. Sticking around are all-wheel drive and the turbocharged XT model. The base 2.5X ($19,995) comes with a manual transmission, while an automatic 2.5X starts at $21,195. Low-emission versions with Partial Zero Emission Vehicle status add $200 across the lineup.

The new Forester is expected to show up at dealerships in April. Keep reading for a full pricing breakdown.

no manual with the XT? weird, assumed people who want the added performance potential would tend to prefer to row their own gears ...

The XT is equipped with the 4AT or 5AT?

Joe Bruzek

J, preliminary specs show XT turbo models as having the four-speed auto. Non-turbo Foresters will have a five-speed auto.

Joe, they've got to be kidding.

Why can't they throw in the 5AT from the Legacy GT?
